Guildhail: First Guild Wars 2 Footage

The RPS-chat-room is broke by the cry: "Guild Wars 2 has splendid terrain!". As we all know terrain is the single most important factor in PC Gaming. As such, I continue to be excited by Guild Wars. The first half of the video is slightly animated versions of the always beautiful Guild Wars concept art, so when the actual game footage arrives... well, it's both a surprise and a joy. Clearly, I've taken a grab from the concept art section to avoid ruining the segue for you. The footage itself follows...


I think that's neat. I think Guild Wars was the bravest and most interesting fantasy MMO design of the 00s, on every level. And before anyone says anything, I think that it's even a question of whether it's an MMO or not says more about how useless almost everyone else has been than Guild Wars itself. Everything which I've heard about Guild Wars 2 sounds like it's a worthy successor, and even its retreats from some of its more radical stances sound intriguing. I really can't wait to hear more.
